Amritsar (August 10, 2012): Dal Khalsa’s political Secretary Kanwarpal Singh met US diplomats Mr Chad Thornberry, First Secretary (Political) and A Sukesh, Adviser Political affairs for 10 minutes at Information office of the Darbar Sahib.
Both the diplomats attached with US Embassy at New Delhi came to Amritsar on the invitation of the SGPC to attend the Prayer Meeting held at Darbar Sahib complex in memory of those 6 innocent Sikhs killed in Wisconsin.
Kanwar Pal told the American authorities that this tragic incident was a clear case of hate crime. He said that Sikhs do believe that this incident was symptomatic of a much deeper insanity that is lurking on US soil. He urged them to neutralize people with such mentality.
He thanked American government for its massive positive response and the magnanimity its leadership has shown in assuaging the hurt sentiments of the Sikh Diaspora. He looked from American officials more drastic measures to stop recurrence of such incidents in future, hoping that this will be a one off incident.
Earlier, while addressing the Sikh Sangat at Manji Sahib Diwan Hall, Mr Chad Thornberry expressed solidarity with the Sikh community and paid homage to victims. He delivered the message of US Ambassador Madam Nancy Powell. The Samagam was presided by Jathedar of Akal Takht Sahib and SGPC president Jathedar Avtar Singh.
